Thread Name: Who's Eric Bogle?
Subject: RE: Who´s Eric Bogle?
Hrothgar, I reckon you're correct - that's the explanation Eric gives himself in the sleeve notes of his CD (he says they were in Palestine, but the same motives for killing them rather than leaving them to be badly treated by the natives).

BTW, 'Safe In The Harbour' (mentioned by someone above) is Eric's 'Tribute Song' to Stan Rogers, of whom he's a great fan. It contains one of the greatest-ever opening lines - "Have you stood by the ocean on a diamond-hard morning, and felt the horizon stir deep in your soul". I sure have.

Ignore GUEST - he's got shit for brains.
